Extended Care Program includes before and after school care that is designed to meet the needs of parents and their children by providing a safe and nurturing environment before and after school hours. Program’s before school care service will be available at 7:30 a.m. on school days. Children will have a choice of quiet activities to participate in before the school day starts.
Program’s after school care begins after dismissal and ends at 5:30 p.m. During this time students will have the opportunity to complete homework and study, be served a light snack, play outdoors (weather permitting), and have options to participate in social and educational activities such as crafts and games. The after school care is led by Chinese Instructors. The atmosphere and activities are intended to enhance the Mandarin educational day while giving students an opportunity to expend energy and develop interpersonal social-emotional skills.
The Extended Care Program begins on the first day of school and ends on the last day of school. Students must be enrolled and pre-pay for the services. Enrollment/billing continues month to month until the office receives a 30 day advance notice of any changes or withdrawal. Withdrawal will become effective on the first day of the month following a 30-day notice period, no partial month refund. There are no credits or refunds for absences, canceled, sick or inclement weather days.
This program excludes days when school is not in session, such as on teacher in-service days.
“I just want to say that I have been very impressed by the quality of your after-school program. My son is always excited to tell me what he learned. I can tell that the teachers in the after-school program spend individual time with him, helping him complete his Chinese homework daily, which is very helpful to parents who work full-time or those who do not speak/write in Chinese. In addition, the teachers take initiative in teaching students math, Chinese poems/songs, and Chinese culture.”
